Does God Expect Thankfulness During Hard Times?

We are not obliged to give thanks to God. However, it is an opportunity for us to do so. As a way to thank God for all the goodness in your life.

To many, thanksgiving seems impossible, since all that matters to them is to get through each day. And do not see the need to give thanks at any given moment.

In all these, it will amaze you to know that you still have to give God thanks.  Job, who unfortunately suffered pain and loss, declared, “Mortals, born of woman, are of few days and full of trouble” (Job 14:1).

What to know

God knows all you go through and has never abandoned you. God loves and cares for you. He also wants the opportunity to help you even if you do not see it. God’s wish for us is that we be in prosperous and be in good health even as our soul prospers.

The Bible says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever” (Psalm 118:1).
